For m1/2" its Britool because I recycled a box of 12 from work along with 30 repair kits. Elora for 3/8th and King Dick for the extended 1".
I submit it does make a difference. Cleaning and replacing, as necessary, is part and parcel of maintaining one's own tools. If they're supplied by the business, then toss 'em is the mind set.It makes no difference at all, you can get repair kits for most ratchets and any competeent engineer or spanner wielder would buy one at the time of purchasing the ratchet.
If it is like the 2 dead snap on ones I had.All to easy to throw a ratchet in the bin rather than spend a few minutes cleaning it out or lubing it. Our guys will do this and go look for another
